Nine acres in Mississippi. “Oakhill”, Circa 1895. Pretty staircase! $198,000

March 16, 2021

Pretty staircase! With some TLC this 4,000 square foot house could be a great one! “Oakhill” was built in 1895. It is located on nine acres in Crystal Springs, Mississippi. The home features original hardwood floors, a grand staircase, curved entryways, ornate mantels and exposed beams. Most of the work appears cosmetic. I would try to undo some of the past renovations. The home has a large front porch, upper balcony, an enclosed side porch and a screened in porch. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,912 square feet. $198,000

From the Zillow listing:


Oakhill 1895. This grand mansion is a diamond in the rough. Yes, it does need TLC but what a grand place it was and can be. Situated on a sprawling 9 acre tract, this beauty just awaits the right person to bring life back into her. Oakhill features the original red oak hardwood floors that are in good condition. The grand ballroom (commonly referred now as the “family room”) contains a graceful curved French door that leads to the west wing. The home has the original fireplaces. You will find the hand carved fireplace mantel in the formal dining room to be the most beautiful and detailed feature of the home being hand carved in Germany. The fireplace in the ballroom is intricately detailed with moulding work and dark stained wood. Another fireplace has a light wood mantel with small columns supporting the mantle. Another fireplace is white painted wood. All fireplaces contain white bricks with white tiled floor in front of them. Downstairs features a large open foyer, formal dining room, family/ball room, butlers pantry, kitchen, den area, sunroom, office and another bonus room. Upstairs you will find the four bedrooms which have Jack and Jill bath areas. So much history can be found at Oakhill being a 4BR/2.5 BA home. Interest rates continue to remain low.
